Acupuncture

Acupuncture and traditional Chinese Medicine have developed over a period of 3000 years. With exact placement into the skin, these needles stimulate the body's defenses and enable the body's ability to heal itself from physical, mental and emotional disease.

Patients do not have to believe in acupuncture for it to work.
